Hey friends! I am about 117 days out, my bridesmaids have selected their dresses, suits have been chosen, rentals have been reserved and I am beginning to second guess everything. I am going into panic mode. I love dusty blue and all the pins I have pinned for the last year have been dusty blue. My fiance really wanted to incorporate maroon, so the guys were going to have maroon ties and the girls would have dusty blue dresses with dark red flowers in their bouquets to bring it all together. When selecting our rentals, we got a creamy and gold textured table cloth, clear chargers with a gold trim, and maroon napkins because they didn't have dusty blue available. Our centerpieces are gold geometric candle holders and our florist is going to put greenery and flowers down along with some other small gold votives. For our sweetheart table I wanted to use cheesecloth to incorporate more dusty blue I thought of using that color cheesecloth but I can't vision it looking good with the maroon napkins.

I know this sounds silly but I just need reassurance or some suggestions of what colors to use because I feel like I just can't envision anything anymore. HELP!!!!

    Kayla,

    First.... relax and breathe!! As long as you are marrying the man you love, the rest are just details.

    Second, the dusty blue & maroon are a classic color combo. I am an artist, so I could tell you the technical reasons why, but that's not really important. I wonder if the cheesecloth is bothering you because of the color or because it is so casual. I sounds like your wedding is more upscale & elegant with the gold accents. Cheesecloth is really informal. Perhaps, a different fabric that is more in keeping with the rest of the décor would be a better choice. For example, you could consider taffeta ( a 5" wide ribbon or fabric) as a table runner or under the plates, running front to back and hanging over the table on the guest side. Consult with the florist, they are really creative and they may have the perfect solution.

    Third, enjoy your day. It will be perfect (no matter what happens).

    I personally think cheesecloth looks very elegant! It's flowy and beautiful and textured! But that's just me.
